Original owner - I have enjoyed this Volvo V40 more then any other auto I have owned. It has a few more problems then I expected for a compact wagon in this price range, but none have been serious and performance is excellent. Fast when you want it but economical - 24 mpg city/highway. I put on a hitch and haul my small boat with no problem. I've loaded it heavy with bricks, mulch, bags of rock, you name it, no problem. It has great personality and has done everything I have asked with no major breakdowns - what more can you ask. 82,000 miles and going strong. Uses no oil, spark plugs clean, no leaks, no sign of any major issue.
Deep distinctive muffler sound, great personality, fun to drive and be in.
